Alan Guttmacher: Pregnancy doesn’t make mental illness worse

Alan Guttmacher, former president of Planned Parenthood on how pregnancy does not worsen psychological problems. This is in conflict with the belief that abortion is necessary for a woman’s mental health.

“There is little evidence that pregnancy itself worsens a psychosis, either intensifying it or rendering the prognosis for full recovery less likely.”

Alan F Guttmacher “Therapeutic Abortion: The Doctor’s Dilemma” Journal of Mount Sinai Hospital, New York, 21:1954

Around this time and shortly afterward, however, pro-abortion activists were encouraging states to legalize abortion for mental health reasons. this quote shows that they were aware such reasons had no validity.

Head of abortion chain laments that doctors don’t want to perform abortions

Ann Furedi, head of the largest chain of abortion clinics in England, talks about how few doctors want to start performing abortions:

“There is a real crisis looming. Unless we can address the problem and motivate doctors to train in abortion, we may well face a situation in five years’ time in which women’s access to abortion is severely restricted. It is our biggest headache.”

Many doctors felt that, with contraception freely available on the NHS there was “no excuse” for women who got pregnant accidentally. Ms Furedi said: “They say, ‘why should we use our skills to clear up the mess?’ It is a very naïve view – unplanned pregnancy occurs for all sorts of reasons.”

Woman who regrets her abortion attends pro-abortion demonstration

A woman who regretted her abortion went to a pro-choice demonstration holding a sign saying “I regret choosing abortion.” She describes being ignored by the pro-abortion demonstrators

In January 2002, when NOW and Planned Parenthood held their annual candlelight vigil for “choice” on the Supreme Court steps, Ms. Forney stood quietly on the sidelines with a sign that said, “I regret choosing abortion.”

“It was almost an experiment to see who would express compassion. One woman said to me, ‘I’m sorry you feel that way.’ But no one else in that crowd offered me a hand. No one cared to reach out to me one iota. I knew in that moment that these people did not care about women’s rights. They cared about abortion rights.”

Doctors watch unborn babies “bounce” in the womb

10 weeks

10 weeks

One doctor describes seeing unborn babies playing on the ultrasound screen:

“When we’re watching the fetus on ultrasound and the mother starts to laugh, we can see the fetus, floating upside down in the womb, bounce up and down on its head, bum-bum-bum, like it’s bouncing on a trampoline. When mothers watch this on the screen, they laugh harder, and the fetus goes up and down even faster. We’ve wondered whether this is why people grow up liking roller coasters.”

Janet L. Hopson “Fetal Psychology” Psychology Today, Sep/Oct98, Vol. 31 Issue 5, p44, 6p, 4c.

Post-abortion woman: my life was hell

From one woman who was pressured into an abortion:

“My mother was furious… She hated me for what I had done. She took me immediately to have an abortion. “Wait a minute… I don’t want an abortion.” I thought to myself. She said I had to do it. She took me and promised not to tell my father. I could not stand for him to know… I was so embarrassed and ashamed. I could not stand to look at myself in the mirror… From that day on, I hated my mother. I turned to drugs, boys, sex, lies, and alcohol. I dropped out of school… Became a stripper and a prostitute on drugs. Had a total of four more abortions… Two of which I was forced to do and the last two of which I chose to do on my own because I had no feeling in me left… I was so far gone. My life was hell.”

Former Planned Parenthood manager describes pressuring women into abortions

Former Planned Parenthood clinic worker Sue Thayer describes how she persuaded young women to schedule abortions:

I trained my staff the way that I was trained, which was to really encourage women to choose abortion, to have it at Planned Parenthood, because that counts, you know, towards our goal. We would try to get the appointment scheduled for the abortion before they left our clinic, We would say thinks like ‘your pregnancy test, your visit today, is X number of dollars. How much are you going to be able to pay towards that?’

If they’d say ‘I’m not able to pay today,’ then we would say something like ‘Well, if you can’t pay $10 today, how are you going to take care of a baby? Have you priced diapers? Do you know how much it costs to buy a car seat? Where would you go for help, there’s no place in Storm Lake–or whatever town they were in–you know, where you can get help as a pregnant mom. So really don’t you think your smartest choice is termination?

20 years after abortion, father confronts his guilt

From Evan, a post-abortion father, whose partner had an abortion 20 years ago:

“I didn’t pressure my girlfriend to have an abortion, but I knew if I actually thought about what I was doing, I wouldn’t be able to live with myself. Was I really murdering my first child? Yes, but I didn’t want to look at it in those terms, so I stayed cold and numb and drove her to the clinic to get it “taken care of,” as they say. As I study human history and the atrocities of the past, like the slave ships going to England in the 1800s or even the Nazis, I wonder how these people lived with themselves. Now I understand. However, you can only shut it off for so long – eventually you have to come face-to-face with the truth…

The writer of the iconic song “Amazing Grace” was a former captain of a slave ship for many years… He could no longer live with the pain and he came face-to-face with God’s forgiveness. It was then that he wrote the song…

My “Amazing Grace moment” came when I was married (not to the abortion girlfriend) and my then seven-year-old son asked a simple question. In our house we sing and dance, and I have little raps that I did with my children. The one with my son had a line that said “You’re my one and only, my only son.” Simple enough, until my son looked me in the eye and said, “Am I your only son, daddy?” This simple and innocent question pierced my soul; everything that I had suppressed for the past 20 years came rushing upon me. Did I dare answer with the truth? “I don’t know, son, I murdered my first child before I found out if it was a boy or girl.” It was at this moment I had to confront the truth and ask for forgiveness from my bride, from God, and then from the most important person, myself.”

Unborn babies recoil from pain at 5 – 6 months

5 months

5 months

Curtis Cook, M.D., Maternal-Fetal Medicine Butterworth Hospital, Michigan State College of Human Medicine:

“In the course of my practice, we must occasionally perform life-saving procedures on babies while still in the uterus. I have often observed babies of 5 to 6 months gestation withdraw from needles and instruments, much like a pain response.”
